Southern Riverina news - - NEWS -

Apolo­gies to Judy Tay­lor for omit­ting to men­tion the raf­fle win­ner from her Hospi­tal Fete stall in last week’s lengthy ‘win­ners’ list. Ruby Whi­ley was the lucky per­son.

It would ap­pear that tak­ings for the fete may be more than $5,500, with some un­fin­ished busi­ness yet to be fi­nalised. A good re­sult.

●●● The next event to mark on your cal­en­dars is the Angli­can Christ­mas Craft Fair, which will be on Fri­day, Novem­ber 23 in the Civic Hall. Ad­mit­tance is $2.

This is a won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity to get those spe­cial Christ­mas gifts from a va­ri­ety of hand­made prod­ucts, lo­cal pro­duce and spe­cial­ity stalls.

Start­ing at 10am, there will be morn­ing tea avail­able, and lunch from noon.

●●● An­other date to note is the Jer­ilderie Cham­ber of Com­merce Christ­mas Bo­nanza to be held on Thurs­day, De­cem­ber 20.

The raf­fle will be drawn at 8.30pm in Luke Park, with three prizes: first a gi­ant Christ­mas stock­ing, sec­ond a $500 voucher from Jer­ilderie Tyre Ser­vice and third a wheel­bar­row of gifts and vouch­ers. Tick­ets are on sale around town.

●●● Con­grat­u­la­tions to Merv and Glad Adam­son who are cel­e­brat­ing 60 years of wed­ded bliss to­mor­row, 15.

They were mar­ried in Nar­ran­dera.

The fam­ily will be host­ing an af­ter­noon tea at the Community Cen­tre this Satur­day, Novem­ber 17, be­tween 2pm and 4pm, to which friends are cor­dially in­vited.


●●● Adding to the news in last week’s SRN of Jer­ilderie’s Tidy Towns awards, our two lo­cal pri­mary schools also re­ceived par­tic­i­pa­tion cer­tifi­cates.

The sec­ond place (over­all town) award and highly com­mended (cul­tural her­itage) award are on dis­play in the win­dow of Sned­don’s Up­hol­stery, prior to be­ing pre­sented to the shire.

●●● Young James Nel­son Mitchell is nearly ready to don a fire­man’s out­fit, af­ter his ea­gle eye spot­ted smoke from a fire in the back yard of a Bolton St home last week.

His mother alerted the lo­cal fire bri­gade, and catas­tro­phe was averted.

●●● Book­ings close at the shire of­fice on Novem­ber 23 for the Sir John Monash din­ner and lec­ture, which will be held on Fri­day, Novem­ber 30 at 6.30pm at the Civic Hall.

Tick­ets are $40 a head, and bar fa­cil­i­ties will be avail­able.

●●● While Terry Leeds and Robyn Ford were in Al­bury re­cently they were taken on a guided tour of the Al­bury Wodonga Ac­com­mo­da­tion Cen­tre, where they were shown a room which will bear the name of ‘Jer­ilderie’. They were quite im­pressed.

●●● Jer­ilderie Lions Club is cur­rently fi­nal­is­ing the 2013 Lions cal­en­dar de­tails, and would be glad to re­ceive any out­stand­ing in­for­ma­tion for the cal­en­dar this week. Contact Sec­re­tary Richard Wright asap on 5886 0064.
